    Printing Photos on Canvas

    Hi everyone,

    I did a search but couldnt find anything from within a year, and a lot can change in a year, so thought i might need to start a new post.

    I'm looking at printing some of my photos on canvas, but im on a bit of a tight budget. Im looking at a 20" by 30" and i'd probably be looking at under $100.

    Can anyone recommend any cheap companies for printing canvas, but that still do a good job? I'm no pro, but im not an amateur photographer either so i appreciate quality, i just can't afford it at this stage

    Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    BalmainBoy

    Getting cheap and getting good quality at the same time usually doesn't work. I have seen some great canvas prints and some horrid ones. The horrid ones generally are from the cheap end of the market.

    probably your best one would be: http://www.canvasprintersonline.com.au
    their quality is good (not as good as the high end ones though) as a friend used them recently and was happy with the results

    Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated
    Nikon, etc!

    I got a good deal on a 1000x500mm canvas from MiniBox about 2 years ago, I think it was $50 + handling from memory. I was quite happy with the end product aswell.
